This Friday (6) the auction of the very rare prototype of the Nintendo PlayStation, which would add the ability to read CDs to the Super Nintendo, ended.
The item was sold for no less than $ 360,000 after conducting a face-to-face auction after the end of online bids on February 27. The console is the only remaining one of only 200 prototypes produced.
The numbers are recorded, but they are still disappointing. Terry Diebold, now a former owner of the console, had purchased the console for $ 75 at a bankruptcy auction without knowing how rare it was.
He has since traveled around the world to exhibit the console and said he had rejected a $ 1.2 million bid for the item, so the auction values are well below what was offered in the past.
The unit sold belonged to Olaf Olafsson, one of the founders of Sony Interactive Entertainment. He left the company to work in another business, called Advanta, and would later get a position at Time Warner.
However, he left the Nintendo PlayStation at Advanta, which went bankrupt after some time and put the item up for sale.
The history of the Nintendo PlayStation is of great importance to the history of video games.
The console, which was never released, is the result of a partnership between Sony and Nintendo to launch a platform capable of reading CDs and Super Nintendo cartridges.
It turns out that after Sony announced the partnership, Nintendo revealed that it closed a deal with Philips for the production of a CD-based platform.
A few years later, Sony would decide to go ahead in the world of consoles alone, launching its own PlayStation, without any involvement of Nintendo, which proved a success, considering that the games division is the most important of the company in today.
Sony Apologizes For Pre-Order Issues from PlayStation 5 Console
A few days ago, when Sony officially revealed the price and release date of the PS5, it immediately opened the pre-order stage of the console in several countries. They are also working with a number of retailers to sell their new consoles.
However, it turned out that the opening of the pre-order stage was quite a problem. It is known that there are many people unable to access the pre-order site of the PlayStation 5 because too many people are accessing the site simultaneously.
As a result, many of them became lazy and disappointed because Sony was said to be not ready to accommodate all gamers who were enthusiastic about buying their new console.
Responding to this, Sony finally spoke up and conveyed their apologies to fans regarding the matter. Sony also promised to fix the problem so that everyone can pre-order.
“To be honest, PS5 pre-orders should have gone smoother, we are very sorry for this. In the next few days, we will release more PS5s so they can be pre-ordered, retailers will provide more information,” said the party. Sony.
It was also stated that later the availability of the PS5 would continue until the end of 2020.
As information, the PlayStation 5 itself is planned to be officially launched on November 12, 2020 in the United States. The PS5 itself is priced at US $ 399 for the Digital Edition version and US $ 499 for the regular version.
Apple Accuses Fortnite Developers of Monopoly
Fortnite game developer received accusations from Apple regarding monopoly. The feud continues between Apple Inc and Epic Games. Adapted from USA Today, Monday (21/9), Epic Games has now filed a preliminary injunction request in a California court.
In addition, Epic Games also wrote that it “suffers irreparable harm” if the Fortnite game is not returned on the App Store.
Epic Games also said that Apple had exercised a ‘monopoly’ if it continued to do so with Fortnite games. As is known, Apple has removed the Fortnite game from the App Store in August.
This is because Epic Games was caught creating their own payment system, instead of using a system made by Apple. Not only that, Apple, which was supposed to get 30 percent of sales in the payment system, didn’t get that.
Meanwhile, Apple is now fending off the accusations given to him. He claims ‘Epic set fire to fire, poured gasoline and is now asking the court to provide emergency assistance’.
The Xbox Series S weighs less than half the weight of the Xbox Series X
Microsoft has recently officially announced the presence of the Xbox Series S console, which is an ‘affordable’ model of the Xbox Series X. In fact, it has also called the Xbox Series S the smallest Xbox.
How not, it is known that the Xbox Series S console is said to be present with a weight of around 4.25 pounds, equivalent to 1.9 kilograms only, unlike the Xbox Series X which weighs almost 10 pounds, equivalent to 4.5 kg.
Yes, this Xbox Series S console weighs no more than half the weight of the Xbox Series X. This makes this console very suitable for gamers who want to have a next-gen console that is small and lightweight.
However, to get the small size and light weight, Microsoft certainly has to trim a number of components in the Xbox Series S. Moreover, the price of this console is called quite cheap, namely US $ 299 .
Unlike the Xbox Series X which can run games with 4K resolution at 120fps, the Xbox Series S is known to only be able to display game content with a resolution of 1440p, but still has framerates up to 120fps too.
In addition, the memory capacity presented on the Xbox Series S is also smaller than the X Series. Of course this is a problem considering the Xbox Series S itself also does not have a Disc Drive which makes users have to download games purchased online through the Microsoft Store.
